The Binn Group has boosted its fleet to more than 50 vehicles providing waste collection services in Perthshire, Fife, Dundee, Angus and Stirlingshire.
Following a recent £3m investment in Scotland’s first solid recovered fuel facility, the Perthshire-based company has spent £2m upgrading and expanding its fleet of collection vehicles.
The new fleet includes four trade waste lorries with specialised waste stream pods, a top-loader dedicated food waste truck, three articulated lorries, two hooklift trucks and three skip carriers.

Binn Group chief executive Allan MacGregor (pictured) said standing still was not an option in a competitive market.
“From a skip hire company launched as an agriculture diversification scheme in 2001, we have grown to be recognised as one of the key players in the industry, employing more than 140 people.
“We want to continue to develop and grow and, to do that, we need to invest in the very latest technology – both in terms of plant for resource handling and recycling and in our fleet of collection vehicles,” MacGregor added.
“We have to ensure we can deliver that type of service for each and every one of our clients, which means keeping abreast of changing technology. We have to keep our service delivery at the optimum level.”
All new Binn Group vehicles have on-board weighing to feed data to the Glenfarg HQ to provide accurate detailed recordings in real time for customers.
